Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has condemned last week’s reported detention of Peter Obi, the Labour Party presidential candidate, at Heathrow Airport, London over identity duplication, describing it as a move by political enemies to frame him up.
Ohanaeze said the plot to embarrass and pull down Peter Obi, because he had decided to legally pursue the mandate believed to have been given him by Nigerians, will continue to fail.
Obi was said to have been interrogated at Heathrow Airport, London, on April 7, over his identity.
Reacting to the development through its national publicity secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia, Ohanaeze said “the embarrassment and evil plots to rope Peter Obi will fail.”
He noted that, “It is very unfortunate for those who want to rope in Obi and embarrass him. However, it was good it happened. After this, there will not be such a thing again anywhere in the world as they have been exposed.
“They have exposed their plots to the whole world. But whoever is playing such is wasting time and energy.
“It is very clear to the world that the man is a man of integrity and law abiding, who had been pursuing his mandate legally. So, any plot to rope him I and embarrass him will continue to fail. They are being exposed.
“It is unfortunate that some Nigerians still want us back wards. But we will resist it, Nigerians will resist it, the youths will resist it because they want a future.”
